Image result for rescued
The compassionate heart of God is revealed in these words of Micah:

"You will soon be sent in exile
    to distant Babylon.
But the Lord will rescue you there;
    he will redeem you from the grip of your enemies." - Micah 4:10

The prophet doesn't hide from the fact that the Israelites will end up going into exile (due to their rebellion), but God will rescue them from the hands of their enemies. It may confuse us as to why God would allow them to go into exile first, before he rescued them, but God's ways are not our ways, so we need to rest in God's decisions.

The Good News for all of us is that God DOES rescue us and He is willing to redeem anyone who longs to return home.

Living in Grace
